Argentinos Juniors vs Lanus Prediction

Argentinos Juniors salvaged a point against Racing Club at home last week, after both teams scored just a goal apiece. The hosts are now without a win in their past four games on the trot and have tasted success just twice in their previous eight.

As of now, the home team have slumped to the fourth spot on the ladder, and are one-point shy of their foes for the weekend.

Meanwhile, Lanus bounced back from the 2-0 defeat to Aldosivi on the road by getting the better of Godoy Cruz with two unanswered goals to their name. The visitors though have been erratic, to say the least, in their recent matchups. They have stumbled twice in their last five encounters in the top flight.

It is also worth mentioning that the guests have not been coping well in their recent outings. Miserably, they have not come out top in any of their previous three clashes away from home. To be specific, their last win on the road was the 1-0 victory over Huracan, back in early November.

In sharp contrast, Argentinos Juniors are yet to admit defeat in front of the home crowd this season. Taking into account that Lanus have not secured the bragging rights in any of their previous two visits to this stadium either, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of the hosts in this one.

However, the home team have shared the spoils in their past two matchups here. Considering that the visitors have also managed to tie the scores in three of their outings so far, it will be safer to back a double chance this weekend.

Furthermore, Argentinos Juniors have looked solid at the back. The fact that they have conceded just four goals from their past seven games here certainly speaks volumes.

On the other hand, Lanus have been a nervous bunch on the road. Disappointingly they have found the back of the net just once in their past three outings. Given that all of their previous three h2h meetings here have also been low scoring affairs, expect no more than a goal or two at the most come Saturday.
